After an exhausting search that has taken nearly 8 months (and you thought the Skins took a long time in finding a coach). The U.S. Eagles have found the man to lead them into the future, and hopefully prosperity on the rugby field. Australian attack wizard Scott Johnson has been named the head man of the U.S. Eagles.
Johnson is a well experienced coach responsible for designing the Australian attack for many years, as well as the Welsh side that won the 2005 6 Nations. Johnson is known for being an innovative coach when designing an offensive scheme. He also holds the reputation for being a player’s coach. That could be very helpful with the rushed conditions the Eagles have to gel in.
Current Eagles captain Mike Hercus is very excited to work under the man that helped train such greats as Dan Carter. He is also looking forward to the way Johnson will look to open up the attack, and thus create a more exciting game.
”The creativity Scott brings in attack is exciting for the Eagles as we have always tried to play enterprising rugby.” Mike Hercus to ARN
Scott Johnson will assume immediate control over his team, and will have his work cut out for him if he wants to have the boys ready to perform in the Church Hill Cup in June.
